this years Art Basel it was raining constantly and it was a real challenge to pick the right clothes for that week. I had plans to wear some really nice summer sandals that I could wear with almost all of my summery dresses. but due to the rain I had to make some drastic changes to my outfit plans. meaning every dress had to find a matching coat, umbrella and shoes that will not be destroyed by the rain.
I was so honored to wear Natascha’s beautiful designer belts: LITTLE FURNITURE ASSEMBLAGE. for three of my outfits I found a matching belt and these are also the looks that I am going to show you in that post.

“have you ever combined a mint green dress with brown? I absolutely love this combo and the colors of the belt work perfectly with the rest of the outfit.”
and now I wanna show you another lovely combination of a bright color with a beige/white houndstooth coat and a very colorful belt by LITTLE FURNITURE ASSEMBLAGE. I was so happy to see that there was exactly the same blue appearing in the belt. together with the pink and red tones this belt is a true statement piece!

last but not least I want to show you different kind of belt. all of the belts are hand made out of leather and are designed to be wrapped either around the waist or hip. next to the belts she also makes very beautiful bangles. you can see me wearing one in the photos below the look. for that very look I chose to wear my new ESPRIT wedges that are now on SALE >>

is the perfect beauty booster for weakened skin. it’s ultra-concentrated formula enriched with mimosa tenuiflora extract, a mayan medicinal plant known for thousands of years for its repairing properties:
• optimizes skin strength
• minimizes the appearance of redness
the skin forms a physical protective barrier. external aggressions (UV, cold temperatures, hard water, etc.) weaken this barrier. the skin becomes finer, more permeable and fragile. feelings of discomfort, rough skin, redness… the skin is weakened.
when I heard the part about minimizing the appearance of redness I knew that I had to try this product and was eagerly waiting for the parcel to arrive. and it did arrive and ever since I am using it day and night and all I need to do is mix a few drops of repair booster with my regular face cream. my skin feels very soft and relaxed after applying cream and booster and I hope to see an improvement on the long run. now I have to wait, apply and see.
known as the “skin tree” of the mayas, mimosa tenuiflora, or “tepezcohuite”, is a shrub found in central america, in mexico, in the state of chiapas, on a narrow strip of land located at an altitude of 800 – 1000 m. according to indian tradition, the powder obtained from the bark has magical properties and helps to heal wounds. the mexican earthquake of 1985 and the shortage of medicines that followed, brought this special tree’s therapeutic benefits back into the spotlight and it is now officially recognized as part of the country’s national heritage. thanks to its healing properties, mimosa tenuiflora has demonstrated an exceptional capacity to restore damaged epidermis. in cosmetics, the bark extract is used for its antibacterial, soothing and regenerating actions
so there are three new BOOSTERS on the market, an orange energy booster, the blue repair booster that I am using and a green detox booster. lets see what the other two do:
fatigued skin. its highly concentrated formula enriched with ginseng
extract, a legendary chinese medicinal plant known
for thousands of years for its stimulating properties:

congested skin. its ultra-concentrated formula enriched with green

wow – what a beautiful collaboration between Pierre Hermé and L’Occitane, I absolutely love the packaging! some of you might wonder who is Pierre Hermé ? he is a very well known French pastry chef that is most famous for his macarons, many of which have unusual flavor combinations. I can absolutely see his signature in the packaging of the fragrances.

Eau de Toilette Jasmin Immortelle Neroli
so in case you are already putting together your christmas presents for your beloved ones this might be something to consider. the products can also be purchased in sets and there is always a matching hand and bodycream with the two fragrances.
sigh I am tempted to buy the sets only for the awesome packaging, hahaha, that is how much I love it! I am curious what you think about this collaboration. leave me a comment below. X

for the readers among you that remember criss cross and how they wore their pants the wrong way around I had exactly such a moment when I was wearing this outfit last week. 🙂
the gorgeous black PARENTI’S cashemere sweater has a HUGE V-neck and I really didnt feel like wearing a top below or taping the sweater to my boobs – so I took a criss cross decision and wore the sweater the wrong way around and it actually didnt feel so bad at all and also it didnt look too bad either. for future times I would totally do it the same way!

my phone is the BEST – not kidding 🙂
a couple of months ago I ditched my iphone and started using this awesome new SONY smartphone – more info about it here << and ever since I have started to use the new phone to capture event pictures I was able to leave my big heavy CANON EOS camera at home. this morning I was playing with the camera and took these lovely photos.
so let me quickly tell you the PRO’s of this new phone: 1. the battery lasts for almost 2 DAYS – thats a big or lets say HUGE bonus compared to my iphone. 2. waterproof – the case is waterproof and can be taken for a swim – before doing that read the instructions that come with the phone. 3. I can upload all my things to my phone _ I have almost toal freedom about my files and music – I can mirror my desktop computer on my phone and work from the go! 4. the brain of the phone is super quick and lets me work in a neat speed. 5. the camera – it has 20.7 MP camera and the option to record 4K movies – there is a time lapse option and many other fancy adjustments for the camera. 6. the color range of the phones – I am so happy with my TIFFANY & CO green phone!
the only CON that I could name is that I had to redownload all the apps and some of them didnt have an android version so I had to search for a dupe. other than that I am very pleased with my new phone!
what phone are you using? do you like the iphone 6? let me know. X
a new dress found its way to my wardrobe!
yay – the sun is out we already passed the month of January so what I am trying to say is we are almost done with winter. or at least thats what I extremly wish for. at the H&M Clarashopping I have found this lovely striped dress for 29.90 CHF and as I was returning several bags of old clothes I got a 5 CHF discount voucher that I have used for the dress – so even a bigger bargain!
the color green mixed with blue and white is a cry for summer – not kidding this reminds me so much of the clear water of the ocean. currently I have seen many cool things in the color blue and green. last week at the Estée Lauder press event I was given a fantastic blue eyeliner pencil in the color COBALT BLUE and it is a dream – in fact I am wearing it today on my upper lash line. another color that drew my attention is the KURE BAZAAR nailpolish in KALE – a wonderful dark subtle green! unfortunately the new green is not on the chart yet. more about these nailpolishes soon on the blog.

another outfit on the blog, this time I am layering my green fluffy funny COMME DES GARCONS jacket by JUNYA WATANABE with the super warm down jacket by C&A (fair down production – read more here >>) this look is a very casual one with a big mix of high and low end clothes. something I love to do is mixing styles and different brands – how boring would it look to wear a head to toe GUCCI outfit – no thanks!

and it is my new SONY phone aka camera. I have played with the camera for the last couple of days and I still can not decide whether I like this one or the SAMSUNG alpha better. I think it is very hard to tell the difference of the quality, it is just a different handling. the coolest thing about the camera is the timelapse, hahaha, I had so much fun testing this out, and of course I had to take a “baywatch”-like running slow motion video. 🙂 I love love love the color, it reminds me of TIFFANY & CO! for the ones among you that are interested in more info about the phone please read more here «
